VIDEO: Maryland Designated Collector

Updated: Jun 21, 2023

In this video and blog, we detail what a Maryland Designated Collector is and how to apply to become one.

A Maryland Designated Collector is allowed to purchase more than one regulated firearm in a thirty day period. This does not effect the seven day hold period but, as mentioned in the video, it does enable the Maryland Designated Collector to procure as many firearms as they want without waiting the thirty days.

This really is a no-brainer.

So, let's apply!

First, let's start by downloading this application:

Now that you have the Maryland Designated Collector Application and Affidavit, go ahead and start by filling out all the check-in-the-box stuff like name, address, DL number, and so on.

Next, you will take your Maryland Designated Collector Application and Affidavit to a public notary. We went to the UPS Store in Leonardtown because it was convenient.

Finally, once you have signed and notarized the Maryland Designated Collector Application and Affidavit, you will want to send it USPS first class to the Maryland State Police at their Reisterstown location.

Maryland State Police

Licensing Division

1111 Reisterstown Road

Pikesville, MD 21208

Attn: Firearms Section

After mailing it off, you will need to wait for an email to come in explaining that you have been granted the status of a “Designated Collector”
